Mindfulness and Art | British Sign Language (BSL) video

Join educator and mindfulness practitioner, Trudi Collier for a series of short videos in British Sign Language that have been commissioned by the National Galleries of Scotland. In these films, Trudi will introduce the health benefits of mindfulness and how it can improve mental wellbeing.

Reflecting on various artworks in the collection, Trudi will explore the connections between mindfulness and art and show how contemplating artworks can offer an escape from the pressure of modern living by providing an opportunity to reflect and slow down.

In this first video, Trudi will introduce the concept of mindfulness and invite us to contemplate Olive Trees by Vincent Van Gogh.
